          They were brilliant that day. Debbie the landlady looked really emotional as she talked about them.

            How is the new club getting along in its league?

              Second currently, but a very fragmented table.

                Season curtailed. Ah well, we go again, as they say.

                I’ve been interviewing former Bury players on Zoom recently, for the AFC website. The Lee Bracey and David Pugh ones were well received but the reactions to the Winston White and 82-year-old Tony Bartley interviews were terrific.

                BT Sport will be showing a programme called Ours at 10.30pm this coming Tuesday, about fan-owned clubs. I’m the Bury fan in it, if you have the desire to see inside my house and me supposedly getting ready to go to a game and walking through Bury town centre.

                  I see that Gigg Lane has been targeted by vandals. Is it all sorted or are the attacks continuing?

                    I was asked to do "at home" stuff a few times, and always said no. There was a line. Much good it did me, domestically, mind.

                      It depends, what are your curtains like?

                        Slightly off topic Giggler, but have you been following the fortunes of your former player Callum Styles at all?

                        He's at Barnsley and looks like he could have a quality career - especially he he can find a bit more pace from somewhere. He's going by the nickname The Bury Baggio at the moment too.

                          Yeah, we follow his progress quite closely. Delighted to see he's doing so well.

                          Paul S it's tremendously upsetting to see the ground in that kind of state. I only imagine it'll get worse. Just before he bailed out on the club like the coward he is, Stewart Day demolished a wall built in 1924 which divided the car park from Gigg Lane itself, leaving the car park totally empty. I'm amazed, frankly, that travellers haven't set up there.

                          The trailer for the BT Sport programme appeared on Twitter today. That's me looking mournful.

                              Why on earth do Hashtag fucking United appear in that trailer?

                                  Giggler reminds me of Simon Armitage, I hope he doesn't find that insulting.

                                    That’s possibly one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received.

                                      "Look at these vile wankers" would have been more apt.

                                        Oh good, I enjoyed your section of the show too. Best part of it so far.

                                          Bury's getting a bit of exposure in the Norwegian paper Aftenposten. On this day in 1903 they won the FA Cup.

                                            The Norwegian supporters club are a great bunch of lads. They used to love coming over.

                                              As I'm sure Giggler is already aware, whilst that Bury side's record Cup Final winning margin may now have been matched, they remain the only team in the competition's history to win it without conceding a goal. That record will definitely hold for another year as Luton scored against Chelsea in Round 4, and Brentford and Manchester United did so against Leicester in Rounds 4 and 6 respectively.

                                                    Primrose Day (which was actually the day after the 1903 final was played) was a day commemorating the anniversary of Disraeli's death (April 19th), the primrose having been his favourite flower.
